Termite Facts for Spring

Termites start to swarm in the spring months and can create a colony on your property.  Here are a few not-so-fun-facts about termites.

  • Termites swarm throughout the warm season, but not as much as during the springtime.
  • Colonies may swarm multiple times.  Later swarms do not math the intensity of the first swarm.
  • Subterranean termites swarm during the day, although Formosan termites (a species of subterranean termite) swarm at night.
  • Swarm flights are brief, aided by prevailing winds.  Winged termites do not fly too far but can be carried great distances by strong winds.
